A Formula One race car can max out at 350 mph - while the same for a NASCAR race car in the heat of a straightaway! Nascar race cars have been known to partner up with the American Police Association for quick hot pursuits - easily taking out the great Camaro, Ferrarri, and Lamborghini police cars of Europe - that only top out at 289 mph - which means the same models as themselves would be a hard catch. But Formula 1 cars are quicker, leaner, and a helluva lot meaner when doing a deadly pit manuever at almost 300 mph! This means - the Nascar Race car is amongst the fastest cars in the world - putting beauties like the Mustang and Cobra to shame in the U.S., or the New York State Police's pride and joy - the Charger RC Daytona that can go 160 mph - but can't catch its man every time. This includes the slow now Crown Vics, Caprices, Lincoln Town Cars, Jettas of England, and finally the slowest Police cars ever recorded - the Probes/Grand Ams of Evans, New York. In other words, any of these cars could catch you with teamwork - but the Nascar would destroy you in a straightaway race, and hot pursuit that would embarass your fancy million dollar car.

Different types of race cars require different specifications to qualify for certain types of racing. It's all about rules and regulations to make an even playing ground for all.

Definitely Nascar, because there are so many cars on the track at the same time, and all the cars driving at speeds greater than 100 mph.

There were 21 cars in the race, 3 transferring from the All-Star challenge and 18 in the normal field

There were 43 cars in a NASCAR race so that there could be just enough action on the field. However, not all tracks have 43 cars anymore.

Because they are all moving at different speeds.

In basic design no, all of these systems work off the same principle; just like a car. Also just like a car their are economy cars and race cars.

Depends, there are different types of race that use different types of car and each race will usually have different catorgries. First there are diffrent kinds of races withe all difrent kinds of cars built for those -drag races -oval races -road/street/airport etc. races -rallys -races on tracks laid out on car parks using cones -hilclimbs and sprints Al have their own kind of cars. - riding your mum with no handle bars their is also the firrarie

Airplanes all have different speeds.

No. Because some cars are different.

Race cars are usually given strengthened roll cages that protect drivers much better than most of the cars on the road. They also have high temperature resistance brakes to allow the car to stop from high speeds most road cars will never see in their life. Sticky tires to allow all the power to be transmitted to the road and; Lastly they most often come with a large engine that gives out a lot of horsepower and torque to a light heavy duty transmission. most cars on the road drive around with v4s and v6s. Rarely do you see a v8 except in trucks or large suvs. But race cars use v8s, v10s, and even v12s to get their lightweight frames to the speed they need to be to stay in the race.

the lapped cars starts in the front because they are kind lucky dogs in the race. if you were the first car down a lap, and a caution came out, you'd be the luck dog.

no they dissolve at different speeds

Race horses only have a couple of speeds, fast and faster. During a race the horse uses the fastest gallop he has. Lope, canter or gallop, they are all a three-beat gait.

Most f1 cars have about 8-9 hundred horsepower but horsepower is limited andall the cars in one race have the same horsepower so one car doesn't go faster than another and it is a fair race.

Not really. All you can do is add performance parts(excluding race cars),color,and put a number thing.

180 litres, I believe, however all cars are under-fueled for the race so the driver must save fuel to make it to the end of the race, but this also makes the car lighter in the early stages of the race.

Iron losse are constant at all different levels of speed

Basically beat every race and URL race. After that the Boss wants to race you. If you beat him, you beat the game, and unlock every car.

first of all cars is spelled wrong you might need some spelling tutors and second cats can brake cars if they were hurled at incredibly high speeds.

Different people within the white race do have different body smells. There are different body smells and odors between all different people. Their race has nothing to do with their body smell.

It is appealing because all kids love cars and its funny and its very colorful and entertaining! It's fun to watch comedical cars race around!
